This upcoming Super Bowl Sunday featuring the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers encompasses one of the largest food, family and friends events aside from Thanksgiving.
It’s an occasion that finds us circling the television, sharing company, and witnessing one of sport’s biggest spectacles.
This means a fantastic reason for using your TV Tray Table set from Manchester Wood. Whether it’s to hold your chips and salsa, pizza, chicken wings, or your computer for checking real time stats or fantasy, a tray table is the perfect item.
Our TV Tray Tables are built to last. They have a double glide design that allows for easy folding and storage. The set comes with a stand that holds 2 or 4 tables neatly. They have an easy wipe-off stain resistant lacquer finish for easy clean up.
We design our TV Tray Table tops in Rectangular, Oval, Contemporary, or Contour shapes, allowing options for a look you prefer.
Enjoy your upcoming Super Bowl Sunday, and look to Manchester Wood for your solid wood furniture needs with all products made in America.

During this cold winter season we find ourselves indoors mostly, if any maintenance inside the homestead needs doing, it’s the perfect time of year.
Manchester Wood’s solid wood furniture needs care as well from time to time, a polish or cleaner after continual use brings out the beauty and craftsmanship in the item. Our products are known to last for generations, so why not have a well-kept heirloom?
Goddard’s is an English cleaner and polish company that we endorse for use on our products. Metal care, stone and tile care, and wood care are their specialties, and there are three products of theirs we feel work great on our items.
For new Manchester Wood products we recommend Goddard’s “Furniture Polish Aerosol,” a spray that nurtures, protects, and brings out that rich luster in the finish. Most importantly, it protects wood from cracking and drying.
Older products, items past 5 years, deserve a more thorough cleaning and polishing. Goddard’s “Furniture Cleaner and Polish” is oil formulated conditioning treatment that’s effective in bringing a deeper luster to wood and provides a stronger, long-lasting protection.
The final Goddard’s product we’ll showcase today is their “Antique Furniture Polish,” another oil formulated conditioning treatment that preserves our long-time customers with Manchester Wood furniture past 20 years. This product is no longer found through Goddard’s site, but a link to purchase from a 3rd party is right here: Allinkosher.com
We hope this information will help you in protecting and preserving your Manchester Wood, American crafted solid wood furniture for many years to come.
Back in August we wrote about our Storage Solution items (Where do you put your stuff?) and how we live in an era where our “stuff” can become overwhelming. From Media Stands, Cabinets, Shelving, Desks, and Accent Tables, we’ve made an effort in producing the most stylish and practical items for any household.
When introducing the Chairside Storage Table, Manchester Wood felt the piece would be an instant success, and it has been since it was unveiled in Yankee Magazine last March. Selling beyond expectation. Produced from solid hardwood ash in either Golden Oak or Chestnut stain-resistant lacquer with it’s most unique feature in design.
The Chairside Storage Table has a flip-top in a concealing and sleek way that allows items to be stored inside the table; great for holding your remotes, reading glasses, or writing supplies.
It’s also narrower than most End Tables, which makes it great for apartments, condominiums, or rooms lacking space for a larger piece.

Manchester Wood, along with countless businesses and working folks faced a challenging 2010. It’s been a year that saw our countries economic decline reach new levels with further lay-offs, cut work time, and Washington’s trying attempts to bridge the gaps.
Most of us could debate (or agree) on the current affairs and handlings of our economic system, but regardless, there is so much to be thankful for this year.
For us, our loyal employees, clients, and customers have made everything worthwhile as we fight through these times with locally grown quality and service.
Manchester Wood has now been in service for 34 years with over half our staff being here for 10 years, and almost 25% have been here 20 years or more.
Quite a statement we feel, an evident result when you look at the character and strength of our employees.
As some might know, we’re a solid wood furniture manufacturing plant with our handcrafted pieces reaching customers directly through our online store, as well as in wholesale, selling to some of the greatest mail-order businesses in the World.
Our client and customer loyalty and respect for our work while keeping thoughtful American craftsmanship in existence means a great deal.
With all that said. The year 2011 arrives this Saturday, and we all couldn’t be more excited for this New Year.
We’ve hit the planning board often towards the end of this year and it’s safe to say 2011 will be our biggest year yet for our online store with expanding and new lines of furniture being announced every month. We’ll be working on a new Home Office line, expansion of our Outdoor collections, Kids furniture, and countless more furnishings that we hope brings warmth in-and-around your home.
New Media with more exposure in Multimedia formats will also see more light this coming year with video being added to our growing and evolving social networking sites. We hope it’ll bring a fresh and revealing look into our “mill” to see how we operate and produce our furniture.
So with all that said, from all of us at Manchester Wood, here’s to you and yours.
See ya next year.
We mentioned in a recent blog (Entertainment Consoles: Introducing our 21st Century Living) how our rapidly evolving Media and Console products have begun to take shape.
From our big tube television sets to our now sleek and slim flat screen plasma TV’s, entertainment consoles have taken on a new appeal in many 21st Century homes.
Whether mounting your television above, or placing it on the tabletop, many options are now available for this newfound TV.

Mount Equinox in Southern Vermont overlooks Manchester and surrounding area towns with a captivating presence. It’s a perfect symbol of the New England outdoors — a “leaf-peepers” paradise with robust trees covered in bright colored leaves during the spring, summer and the always abundant, fall season. Even during these winter holidays, a beautiful stillness is found.
It should be no surprise that Manchester Wood has found great influence from this mountain and the other surrounding natural landmarks we exist with everyday.
The Equinox Collection offers the Equinox Chair, Equinox Bench, and Equinox Rockers for your outdoor enjoyment. It’s been an instant favorite for many longtime customers of our Adirondack furniture line.
Although it’s too cold for most to be outside relaxing on furniture, our Adirondack Chairs have been a popular holiday gift year after year. We feel our Equinox Collection will follow with the great tradition of supplying quality outdoor (and indoor) gifts in this season of giving.
Traditional rooms in most homes call for a more enlivened spirit, touching on vintage as well as current styles. We mentioned in a previous post, placing comfort before formality has been a growing trend in the new century.
At Manchester Wood our ever-growing Contemporary Collection seeks the common ground between style and comfort for all when enjoying a room. Whether with our coffee, sofa, or end tables and media stands to present your entertainment systems, we trust you’ll find what you’re looking for.
Antique and old traditional lines influence many of our designs. When we add a new “updated” flavor to these items of influence it adds a familiarity, but more importantly, a forward outlook – an important aspect that furniture should carry in your home.
If your family is growing, many of these traditional formal living or dining rooms become “all-purpose” rooms, and we totally understand. It’s important for all of us to create! Especially for our youth, an all-purpose or “great” room makes perfect sense – a shared space for all to enjoy.
With our step stools, cabinets for storage, and children’s furniture, Manchester Wood prides itself on finding items that suite your needs for classic comfort in your home!
